Since I'm suddenly obsessed with the local media, I'll take one more brisk stroll down Amber Theoharis' new career path.
I mentioned in another entry that she'll be working full-time for MASN as part of their Orioles' coverage. I should clarify that she hasn't signed a contract with the network. Theoharis and MASN won't confirm that a deal has been struck.
Maybe it's pending a physical.
Anyway, nothing is official yet, but an announcement could come from MASN in the near future.
I wasn't suggesting that Guthrie will or should replace Adam Loewen in the rotation. I was, however, suggesting one solution if the team wanted a second left-hander in the bullpen while keeping Guthrie, Todd Williams and Scott Williamson on the roster. But that also would require Guthrie to have a sensational spring, and Loewen to struggle. And a few other factors.
Just thinking out loud, folks.
Did you know that Guthrie was drafted three times: The Mets in 1997 (15th round), the Pirates in 2001 (third round) and the Indians in 2002 (first round)?
